Same world, two views

This is a photograph of two responses to a pleasant summer evening in St. Charles, Illinois. Rush to get somewhere or sit a while and enjoy it. I’ve spent a disproportionate share of my life rushing to get somewhere – job advancement, financial security, keeping up with appearances – and not enough time enjoying where I am – with family, with friends, with my God, with myself.

Call it destination focus versus journey focus. In this life, we’ll spend a lot more time in the journey than at the destination. Don’t miss either.

Coming across this photograph this morning was a good reminder for me.
